#1 Plan animations
According to some television programs ... sometimes you can get bored. You should avoid down time and offer some entertainment to occupy your guests. Offer games outside if the wine of honor goes outside,, a photobooth, magicians (there are animation companies that offers DJ and different performances like magic For the wine of honor), a release of Thai lanterns, tastings with buffets a little more atypical ...
#2 Hire a Babysitter
Well ... yes because we often talk about it but we do not see much ... So think about renting the services of a babysitter. I can assure you that guests can appreciate to see someone who takes care of the children who often play like crazy people (and often they love to do stupid things ...). Parents can chat, drink and eat quietly without running after their offspring. And if you want to fill them, plan a room specially for them with games, toys, snacks... and / or even a room for children and babies who are already sleeping at 9pm ...
#3 Choose a magical place
Choose a magical place ... easier to say than to find one specially with a reasonable budget. But think about unusual places like museums, nightclubs, circuses, on a barge.. Or in a field with a barn or a tent in case of bad weather. The idea is great !!
#4 Choose your outfit
Your outfits! The majority of people expect a bride in a long white dress and a groom in three-piece suit. So if you're looking to stand out and break codes, choosing your outfit is important. I advise you to opt for a short dress or a long dress but not necessarily white, why not nude, colored or even glitter. For men, forget the classic costume and if the wedding happens in summer, we can even wear bermuda and vans!
#5 Propose an offset menu
Forget duck breast and surprise your guests with an inventive menu, themed, street food or a picnic if weather conditions permit.
#6 Prepare a WOW first dance
